Squid explicit/forward proxy should relay the WebSockets CONNECT request
to upstream WebSockets servers just fine.

In all other cases Squid should be negotiating that HTTP/1.1 be used
instead of WebSockets. That is one of several proper outcomes from
protocol negotiation. It is also the correct outcome given that Squid is
an HTTP proxy, not a TCP or SOCKS proxy, and does not have native
WebSockets support.
